  • What is Tugg?

    Tugg is a platform that helps fans bring their favorite alternative content to theaters across the country. Tugg creates community-driven events turning social interest into action. Crowdsourced screenings show theaters that there’s enough demand for a film event if enough pre-sold tickets are sold before the deadline…

    How does Tugg work?

    Events will only happen if enough tickets are reserved in advance to meet the threshold, so spread the word to your friends and family! Tugg emails tickets to attendees when threshold is met. If an event does not meet threshold before its deadline, the screening will be called off and no one is charged for their ticket reservation.

    My city doesn’t have a screening. How can I see Bending The Arc in theaters?

    Click the button under the Host a Screening tab above for more information on how to bring “Bending The Arc” to your city! Have questions? Email

    What if an event sells out?

    Tugg will do their best to upgrade quickly to a larger house and even add a second screening when possible. Click “Follow Event” on the event page to be notified if more tickets become available.

    Can I buy tickets at the door at the theater?

    No, tickets need to be purchased through the event page. Tickets will remain on sale up until 4 hours prior to the event, pending availability.

    I can’t find my tickets?

    Tickets will only be emailed once the event meets threshold. Be sure to check your spam folder! If you still can't find your tickets email
